MeowThe feline within me wants to laze on your pillow all day long.She yowls and cries when locked out of your roomand demands the quilt on your bed as well.The feline within me wants to sunbathe on the window sill.She wants you to leave your plants there, tooin case she gets hungry during her nap.The feline within me is conceited.She is the most important thing in your lifeand she demands you know that.Pet her.

Midwrite CrisisI think I hit the midlife crisis of writing, because I want to go out and buy an expensive, luxury pen complete with pocket protector and pocket dictionary to strut around in and appear cooler than I actually am. I couldn't even imagine walking around downtown in black slacks, a white button up shirt with a pocket over the right breast that bounced a tiny dictionary and a fourteen karat gold fountain pen with a dragon crawling around it. Of course, the protector would be in the pocket incase the pen were to bleed, but why would it? It's a fourteen karat gold fountain pen with a dragon crawling around the sides.But then I come up with ridiculous things like the aforementioned and realize that I didn't dry out the supposedly endless well of story telling creativity; I merely fell into it.

The wind was freezing cold, the kind that just totally ignores coats and scarves, and the rain was less like a light shower and more like Niagara Falls. I wouldn't be out at all on a night like that, believe you me, if it wasn't for Kiko and her bloody drumkit. It was nine o'clock when she called me, all worked up and pumping with adrenaline, and announced that she'd just written the best drum solo in the history of mankind and I simply had to come over, since her webcam's been broken for months and 'it wasn't the same on the phone'. And so I'd ventured out into the cold and wet to trek halfway across London (alright, a few blocks, but still) and hear thy fabled solo. It was pretty good, actually, but it would've sounded better during daylight hours when I wasn't soaked through and frostbitten.And so, when Kiko had finished enthusing about how awesome it
